Maruti is a car-maker that knows how to keep a lead and increase. Its dominance in the Indian car market is unlike any other as one player takes up such a large market share. One of the reasons is its vast product portfolio covering every tiny inch of the market. Here is their list of upcoming launches.
Already this year has seen many launches but more is coming and the next one is the Celerio X which is coming Diwali time. The Celerio X as you can see is based on the Celerio being a more crossover based car like the Hyundai i20 Active. The styling is revised and certainly looks more rugged now. It gets increased ground clearance (120mm), black grille, smoked headlamps, black ORVMs, cladding, roof rails all black too. The interiors will have different colour seat covers. It will have the same petrol engine with manual and AMT option.
As we had exclusively reported, currently the car-maker does not have any plans for a petrol Brezza however it will get an AMT option with its diesel engine. Currently the Brezza only offers a 5-speed manual and an AMT will expand its appeal further and it will be fighting the upcoming AMT Tata Nexon and the automatic EcoSport facelift. The AMT will be offered only on the top-end trim though later Maruti will also add it in the other trims.
This is a big one and the new gen Swift will debut at the 2018 Auto Expo. This is based on a new platform, new interiors while the engine line-up is still the same with the 1.2 petrol and 1.3 diesel they would be tuned. The new Swift looks sportier plus thanks to new platform there is a bit of more space along with the interior looks sporty. Unlike its compact sedan sibling- Dzire, the Swift will get an all back cabin but will have the same flat-bottomed steering wheel and touchscreen. The new Swift still retains its fun to drive DNA and would be positioned below the Baleno plus of course sold via Arena showrooms.
